Police Use Facebook to Charge 8 Penn State Students for Cheerleader’s Fall

Police have charged eight PSU students for furnishing alcohol to Paige Raque, the 19 year-old sophomore who fell five stories out of a screen window at a party in October. She was reportedly “dancing on top of a table with other individuals when she fell out.” Four of the defendants were cheerleaders, like Raque. Another was on the dance team. All have been removed from their teams, but not necessarily for this reason. (Though probably.) And all were girls. (If you really want their names, click here.)

More party details: Between 40 and 50 guests attended, there were five boxes of wine and nine bottles of vodka, and wouldn’t you know it, a bunch of it was documented on Facebook, which police used to track down the individuals who were there. For her part, Raque suffered serious brain and pelvic injuries from her fall, though she can talk and walk, and is recovering in her home in Kentucky. [Daily Collegian]
